Aidon chosen as the partner for Elenia’s AMM renewal
Elenia has selected Aidon as the supplier of its next generation AMM solution. The solution consists of measuring devices, a communication solution and a reading service with interfaces. Voimatel Oy is responsible for meter installations. Preparatory work for the implementation of the project will begin during the end of this year and the main focus of the project is scheduled for years 2021-2024.
“This is a great closure for over one year’s innovation project of Elenia in which we utilised new technologies to develop all parts of the AMM solution, with the aim of creating significant business process benefits for Elenia. This development work also creates a strong foundation for Finland’s next-generation AMM infrastructure,” says Petteri Heinänen, Aidon’s Business unit director for Finland.
